On Saturday about 1 p.m., residents heard a loud boom, a barbecue grill fell from one apartment to the porch below and flames shot up through the Bordeaux House Apartments on Rivera Lane. More than 20 people were displaced because of the fire that destroyed four units and damaged four others.
Three occupants sustained injuries: one with a laceration to the hand, one with smoke inhalation and another experienced chest pain, KSBY said.
Firefighters are continuing to investigate the cause of the fire that caused an estimated $500,000 in damage to the property.
